Griff Symonds and wife Janet manage Mt Flora Station which sits between Nebo and Moranbah on the Peak Downs hwy. Together with Matt Garside, head stockman, Griff and their team have just completed their 11-week mustering. Mt Flora employs a number of Jackaroos and Jillaroos to assist with the muster and safety is a key focus, particularly when yarding stock.
“Now that we’ve built these, stock work is much safer and more efficient because they’re able to work the cattle without getting in with them, particularly in the working area. I think that tends to let them build confidence in themselves and develop their cattle handling skills.”
